Grace Outreach staff lifts weights and creates a Scholarship!

Last Saturday three members of the Grace Outreach Staff competed in the Iron Maidens Raw Open: Danae Mcleod, Derrian Robinson, and Bintou Darboe (pictured above) lifted weights to a crowd of 150 people at Crossfit South Brooklyn. We tested our squat, bench press, and deadlift strength, and helped raise money for a scholarship that will benefit Grace Outreach Students!

Competitors in the Iron Maidens Open raised over $29,000 for Grace Outreach students who have no access to financial aid. By creating the Iron Maidens Stay Strong Scholarship we’re helping women who are staying strong in their educational goals get the financial support they need to attend college.

The Iron Maidens Raw Open and the Stay Strong Scholarship with Grace Outreach are getting all kinds of press. Check out the links below to find out more about the event, and stay tuned for news about the Grace Outreach Scholars Program!
